Burj Dubai to be challenged?
Burj Dubai, which is on its way to becoming the tallest tower in the world, could be confronted by another Dubai landmark, Al Burj, before its completion in 2008, officials told a Meed Projects conference on Tuesday.
"With more than 700 metres in height and more than 160 floors, Burj Dubai will be the tallest tower in the world," Abdullah Lahej, Emaar Properties director of construction, said, according to Gulf News.
Al Burj has been presented to General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence. "At the moment, I can only say that Al Burj will be at least 700 metres tall and one of the tallest towers in the world," Robert Lee, Nakheel's director for development, disclosed.
